See The Zia - Helen Zia

Wednesday, April 22, 2009

If you're looking for something to do - short notice I know - check out Helen Zia down at Bryn Mawr’s Dalton Hall at 7:30 this Wednesday night:

Asian-American activist, author, and journalist Helen Zia will be speaking at Bryn Mawr’s Dalton Hall, room 300, on Wednesday, April 22, at 7:30 pm.

Her subject for the evening will be “Transcending ‘Evil’ in the Age of Obama: Notes of an Asian American Feminist.”

“As this nation rapidly moves toward a ‘minority majority’ and emergent groups move out of invisibility in our workplaces, communities and even the White House,” Zia asks, “can we re-envision the new face of America in these contemporary times that have been labeled ‘post-Civil Rights,’ ‘post-racism,’ and ‘post-feminist’?”
